Potato Cakes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chilled mashed potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Divide the mashed potatoes into 8 equal portions. Use your hands to form 1/2-inch thick patties.

 

Heat the oil with the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Mix the flour with the salt and pepper in a pie plate. Coat the potato patties in the flour mixture. Add the potato cakes to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until they have formed a golden crust, 15 to 20 minutes.  Turn and cook the other side until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper and serve hot
